Cirque Plume started with three groups of ruffians from the Franche-Comté region of France. A simple encounter on a barge, and they disembarked as a single circus troupe, combining juggling, theatre, fanfare and dance. Thirty years later, Cirque Plume can offer itself the luxury of a stopover at the Villette in Paris, to present Tempus fugit? a walk along the lost road. A poetic and festive interpretation of time, transmission, sensitivity and history. Piano and saxophones thunderously reverberate under the big-top whilst the thirteen performers of the troupe give their all on the stage. Here, a tightrope walker leaps and bounds along a razor’s edge. There, an acrobat twists in the huge Cyr wheel. Prodigious!
